- What is one lesson/thing you would tell a group of men about women?

"The media paints inaccurate portrayals of gender roles, making women feel like we must live up to imaginary standards of femininity.

There is no perfect woman.
We are more than domesticated housewives.

We are not all damsels in distress waiting for our knight in shining armor.  
If you want someone to take care of you, hire a butler.  
If you want someone to take care of, get a goldfish.  

Women are powerful, intelligent, and should be celebrated in every form.”

Ellie was so tiny!

“ The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. ”

“ If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them. ”
